• IS COMMUNICATION COACHING RIGHT FOR FOR YOU?

If you want to communicate clearly and with confidence, you’ve come to the right place.

Your ability to communicate effectively is a critical component of your success in your career and your personal life. 

Whether you’re talking with clients, a group of your peers, your executive leadership team, or key stakeholders, you want to convey clarity, competence, and confidence. You want to portray authority and approachability in your conversations, presentations, and meetings. 

You’ve got something to say, and I’m here to help.

About me:

I’m the CEO of Practically Speaking, LLC, host of the Minivan Mogul Podcast & author of Minivan Mogul: A Crash Course in Confidence for Women. My passion for communication comes from spending nearly two decades as a Speech-Language Pathologist, helping people regain the ability to talk after illness or injury. I’m a motivational TEDx speaker, a group facilitator, and a mentor. I help others speak with confidence using strategies I’ve learned the hard way throughout my career. My background includes advanced work in adult neurology and emotional intelligence. I blend my scientific approach speaking with my love of storytelling and humor into my work with individual clients and corporate teams alike. Most importantly, I’m a mom, minivan driver, and front-row fan of my clients.

  • get nervous when called upon for your opinion/thoughts and you haven’t had time to prepare
  • struggle to say no to or question senior leaders
  • find written communication easier (e.g. text/direct messaging/emails) because it allows time for editing

  • lead a team who is struggling to communicate effectively with clients and/or each other
  • lead a team who has to present in front of clients regularly
